Vintage Christmas

Please scroll down for my Creative Cottage Challenge Design Team Card... thanks!

Good evening me lovelies! Well, did someone mention that Christmas was coming... oh yeah in like 10 weeks or so? Well better get me skates on with a card or two so here's one I've done for the Wags n Whiskers challenge 'Vintage/Shabby Chic'. I've used my fave Wags n Whiskers stamp, coloured with Promarkers and then aged using Distress Inks (Vintage Photo and Old Paper). The paper is from an old Dovecraft pack, sorry can't remember the name. I've used pearls from Quixotic to create the details and the holly leaves are cut from some green card. Finally, a sentiment and flower finish the card. There's a new monthly challenge at Quixotic Paperie and this month it's Christmas is Coming... so that fits perfect with my card, as does the challenge at A Spoon Full Of Sugar which is Winter Wonderland.

Better go check on my cupcakes in the oven... they smell delish! Ta ta!
